Missouri Assistant Coach Barry Odom was the primary recruiter for Braylon Webb.  Here's what Coach Odom said about Webb.  "He's got great range, and great speed up the hash.  He's the starting point guard on the basketball team............... Braylon's going to help us starting out at the safety spot, and we'll see how he fits in on special teams."


JP: "Webb hasn't received as much hype as his talented teammate, but his HS coach told me that he is just as good of a player and could wind up possibly even better on the college level. Very strong athlete who can cover, play against the run,hit and play special teams."

Greg: "Braylon Webb is an outstanding safety prospect.  He is a very gifted and versatile athlete who can do everything on the football field, and is a strong candidate for early playing time at Missouri.  In addition to his great athleticism, he also possesses outstanding ball skills, and is a real heady player, as well as a great competitor, and leader.  Like many of his new teammates at Missouri, Webb is used to winning.
